Obituary of Carol Alice Harrison
Please share a memory of Carol to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Carol Alice Harrison (Simon) passed away Saturday, January 15,2022 after a short illness. She was born to Robert and Margaret Simon on February 5, 1942, in Evanston, Illinois. Carol moved with her family to Twin Lakes, Idaho in 1952 where she spent her childhood. She graduated top of her class at Rathdrum High School in 1960 and graduated from University of Idaho in only three years where she was a member of the Phi Kappa Phi honor society. She moved to San Francisco and worked for Homestake Mining Company as an accountant for her entire career. In 1967 Carol married David Harrison and they enjoyed many happy years together until his death in 1989. Carol had a variety of pets over the years which she cherished. Carol was a long-time member of the Episcopal church and was an active part of parish life at St. Andrews church in San Bruno. One of her special traits was her interest in other religions and her respect and kindness for her neighbors who practiced faiths other than her own. In later life Carol moved back to North Idaho to be closer to family and the lake country that was home. She adored her nephews and nieces and their families. She referred to them as “her ducklings.” Since 2014 Carol has resided at Generations Assisted Living in Rathdrum and her family would like to thank the staff for their loving care and attention. Carol was a unique individual and she cared deeply about her friends and family. She loved keeping up on worldwide financial news and had many opinions to share. Carol was a brilliant woman and had an almost photographic memory. Carol is survived by her brother, Bruce (Pam) and her nephews Rob Simon (Missy), Frederic (Danielle) and nieces Kristine Carr (Marcus), Summer (Farley), and grand nieces and nephews, Cameron (Anna), Jordan, Stephanie (Kevin), Noelle, Savannah, Matthew, Aya and Arthur as well as great grands Brayden and Emma. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, David, her brother Barry, and her parents Robert and Margaret Simon. A celebration of Carol’s life will be held later when family and friends can more easily gather. Tributes in honor of Carol can be made to the restoration of the historic schoolhouse located near her childhood home on Twin Lakes Road. Please send donations to Twin Lakes Community Schoolhouse (401-c3) at 10017 West Twin Lakes Road, Rathdrum, Idaho 83858
